Today, the RWS Sketching Group were out and about in the City of London on a day which progressed from spots of rain to drizzle to heavy rain.

So I opted for sketching in Leadenhall Market where they were putting up the Christmas Tree outside the Brokers Wine Bar where one of my exhibitions was in March this year.  Apparently this week is the Winter Festival in the Market and the Lord Mayor of London is due to formally light up the lights on Friday 19th November at 5pm.

This sketch is of the lights being hung.  It was quite intriguing watching three blokes work out where they all needed to go!

I think I may well return and do a late afternoon/early evening one of the lights on.


  1. I want to be able to sketch like this!!! You are so talented. I LOVE your work :0)

  2. What a beautiful way to start the Christmas season. I was very bah humbug until I saw this excellent sketch.

  3. What a delightful choice of subject. Would look forward to seeing one with the lights! Great idea.
